I LOVED diet soda, have had it for YEARS. The last diet I was on said to not drink it. I thought I would not be able to handle that request! Well, I surely surprised myself. I have not had diet soda for over 1 year Plus I don't miss it either. I drink water and tea and coffee. Mostly water. I just forget to mark it off every day.
One thing about it. My hubby said he thinks I substitute ice cream instead. Hmm...he may have a point. So my next secret will be to try and recognize when I want ice cream, why, and handle it realistically.
